Sails Guided Walks & Tours

"Sails" Guided Walks and Tours offers guests a complete Stewart Island natural history, history and life style experience. Your hosts have between them over 75 years island life and guiding experience.


$60.00 - $175.00


"Sails" Guided Walks and Tours offer guests a complete Stewart Island Experience. Our guided walks focus on Ulva Island Open Sanctuary and explores the natural history of Ulva Island in the context of both Stewart Island and the wider New Zealand scene. We try to schedule tours to suit the weather and guests timetable, but generally prefer the afternoon, when most visitors have left, and the afternoon birds are out and about.

Party size is small, generally never more than six per guide and the tariff includes transfers for the four hour tour.

Your guides are long term island residents. Peter was once Forest Ranger in charge of Stewart Island and Iris was a foundation trustee of Ulva Island. We are DOC Concessionaires.
